BloorHomes competition winners

Children from Y6 put themselves forward to enter a Design-a-Bedroom competition for two brand new homes yet to be built on a new development. Their design boards so impressed the judges of the competition that they awarded them !st place! Not only that, but they earned the school a new tablet, each child received an art set for themselves and they had thrill of knowing that the show home designer was going to make their bedrooms a reality in the finished houses!

Well done to the pupils for all their research and background work, colour coordinating, imagination and creativity.

Figurative sculpture- Giacometti Style

The artists in year 4 have been looking at the sculptures created by Alberto GIacometti.  Giacometti sculpted long skinny people with elongated limbs in a variety of poses.

The children had a go at sketching models in sporting poses

before making their own Giacometti inspired figures using wire and masking tape.

Crazy and Amazing

It been a while since we’ve had a video of something from the amazing world of music and musicians. This video is what can be done with music and knowledge of mechanical engineering. Its sort of mad and wonderful at the same time but it must have taken an age to build so the timings and tunings all work properly!

What do you think? Could you ever build something that does more than one thing at once?

The Mysterious Mayans

To tie in with their new History topic, the year 4 children have begun to look at the images that the Maya adorned their buildings and artefacts with. The Maya were one of the few ancient civilisations to create their own writing system.  Whilst many historians and archaeologists have decoded some of the hieroglyphics and symbols, many still remain a mystery.

We had a go at designing our own Mayan inspired symbols.
